Tests find 4 Recommended products consumers can use under new laws
Yonkers, NY — There are several low-phosphate dishwasher detergents that performed very well in Consumer Reports’ latest tests, which is good news for the traditionally low-scoring eco-friendly products.
Consumer Reports tested 24 low- or no-phosphate dish detergents and found four Recommended products. Although none equaled the excellent (but now discontinued) product that topped CR’s Ratings in August 2009, seven were Very Good.
Consumer Reports testers smeared dishware with a mix of 17 foods (pots got a mac-and-cheese blend) and then baked on the foods and cleaned the items in identical dishwashers to assess how each detergent performed.
Dr. Howard Winn, Professor Emeritus and Luncheon Speaker Sixth Annual Clarksville Writers’ Conference
Introduced by Dewey Browder, Professor and Chair of the Department of History and Philosophy, Howard Winn. Professor Emeritus of history at Austin Peay State University and co-author of A History of Austin Peay State University, 1806-2001 and Clarksville Tennessee in the Civil War: A Chronology, advised participants of the Sixth Annual Clarksville Writers’ Conference to use but not abuse history.
Howard gave examples of the abuse of history through a newspaper ad that took a quotation from Thomas Jefferson totally out of context. The full page ad’s implication that George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were supporting the idea of “In God We Trust” or the United States as a Christian nation was totally without merit, according to Dr. Winn’s view. He went on to explain that “each of these men was an 18th Century revolutionary who sought to demolish the ancient tie between church and state that had impeded both the growth of liberty and non-established churches (Catholic, Anglican, Congregational).
